My Trades for Convention

One of the best things to do at Convention-Trade!

The Trading or Swaping, the "I'll give you my two for your two ideas".

It's something I thouroughly Enjoy. Check it out.

Here are some of my Cards:


Dream Card using My Favorite Stamp-Sunflower. This one was using the New Gray-Smoky Slate and Early Espresso and Summer Starfruit.


The other style was with Basic Gray and Chocolate Chip and Summer Starfruit. I like to think they were stunning. I do know I was very popluar to trade with.

This was my Card Candy Swap along with my 3-D Swap-which I ended up missing. Trust me when I say Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOO! I was so mad and then a bit of sadness. I worked hard on these. I had 12 for the Card Candy and 14 for the Mini Notepads. Here is the true story.

You have to have your name Badge with you in order to enter the Convention. I had left it on the desk in the hotel. Ugh! I was 1/2 way to the conven. center and realized I was not wearing it and had to turn back around. Since my hotel was a mile away from the Convention Center, I got back too late to swap. So-Believe it or not-I ended up getting trading with 2 different gals for 2 Free Iced Americano's during that day. At Convention Venues-That's about $9.00 worth. HAH-Who knew a Trade was worth more than a traded paper piece! Bring back the Barter…So I felt better and ended up trading for some amazing 3-D ideas and cards.

    HI, just wondering how you packaged your ‘card candy’ so that the embellishments can be used on other projects? How did you get them to stay in place on the cardstock backing?

    Hi Charissa, I added dimensionals which can be removed easily. Thanks for asking.
